I told you I was going to try to get a video of Jansen singing Baa Baa Black Sheep this weekend because it is quite possibly the cutest thing I have ever heard. Well my parents kept
both of my nieces this weekend so my brother and SIL could have a little weekend getaway, so Jansen and I spent a lot of time over with them. Stephen went camping this weekend and THANKFULLY it was a “dudes only” trip. Great for me since camping is totally and completely not my cup of tea.
Anyways. An entire weekend of Jansen and Avery meant that there were so many cute moments.
Jansen and I started our day on Friday with a trip to Half Price Books so he could buy a Franklin book with his pennies. I’m starting this new thing where I teach him that coins actually buy things and when you save them, you can get things you want. So we went to Half Price with a quarter, a penny, and two nickels. He was completely overwhelmed by the selection of books but ended up choosing Hurry Up Franklin to buy. I had told him he was going to get to see Avery later that day so he decided he’d like to buy her a book too. He kept telling me that he thought she’d like a Cars book, but I didn’t agree. He finally decided to get her the same book that he chose. Matching books. How precious. So we went to the front and he gave the man his coins while I secretly slip my debit card. The man gave him a balloon to take home and it was all cute and wonderful until we got int the car and he said, “I need my pennies back!”
Thankfully he didn’t dwell on that
too much. He got over it and decided his new book and his balloon were pretty great.
We came home and read his book and then he went down for a nap. On a whim, I decided to construct a mailbox for him our of some of the giant boxes we just got in the mail from diapers.com. I’ll post about that separately.
After nap we headed to Nana and Poots’ house to have dinner and play.
The remainder of the weekend was full of cute conversations, singing, playing in the pretend kitchen, having meltdowns, taking naps, and holding hands.
Gosh those kids are cute.
And for your viewing pleasure, here are some videos. One of Jansen singing Baa Baa black Sheep, one of the ABCs, and one of Ring Around the Rosie.
